The International Cricket Council has announced that South Africa will host the Women's T20 World Cup in 2022.
The ICC confirmed the news on their Twitter account on Tuesday.
This will be the first time South Africa will host a senior ICC event since the 2007 Men's T20 World Cup.
The Proteas women will automatically qualify for the tournament as hosts, while the seven highest-ranked countries in the ICC Women's T20 team rankings - as of 30 November 2021 - will also automatically qualify.
Two teams will be confirmed at the Women's T20 World Cup qualifiers.
